Sussex, who will be hoping to reverse the result in the one-day decider, qualified for the final after defeating Nowra at the weekend.
After choosing to bat first, Sussex’s skipper Jake Westley exploded for 13 boundaries and six sixes on his way to scoring 144.
Westley received support from Geoff Webber (45), Jason Hornitzky (34) and Dean Stanwell (33), as the hosts posted the enormous total of 373 from their 93.2 overs.
With the ball, the only two multiple wicket takers were Tom White (3/22) and John White (2/37).
In reply, Nowra only had five batsmen reach double figures, as they were all out for 166 in the 52nd over.
Geoff Rumble (49), Joshua Fernie (28) and Lachlan Adlington (24) led the way for Nowra, while Geoff Benning (5/38), Webber (2/17) and Chris Barford (2/30) did the damage for Sussex.
Sussex will now play Basin, who defeated Berry-Shoalhaven Heads at Franis Ryan Reserve.
After being sent in, Basin made 135, thanks to 55 from Andrew Woolfe and despite Timothy Duggan’s 7/36 and Daniel Watson’s 2/34.
In reply, Berry could only make 73, despite John Ulrick’s 36 – with Michael Dolby (5/5) and Troy Cole (3/26) doing the damage.
To close the match out, Basin reached 3/144 at stumps in their second innings, thanks to Tobias Hanger’s 43 and Phil Cowan’s 40.
